When I made my sketchbooks (see below, older posts) I had some watercolor paper left over and decided to make a "purse-size" sketchbook that I could always have at hand...I did that fire hydrant in the snow one time after I had knee replacement and went along for the ride to the grocery store. When my wonderful caregiver husband went in for the groceries, I had my purse-sized pad with me and the only thing I could see other than snow was the fire hydrant. I put it up next to my regular sketchbook just to show the size. (That's an old blacksmith cabin down in the Smokies.)
About 15 years ago, a friend enouraged me to come to a watercolor class. That was the beginning of a hobby that I truly enjoy.
A few years later, I joined a "Watercolor Sketchbook Journal" class taught by Catherine Carey author of "A Petoskey Watercolor Journal." see: www.catherinestudio.blogspot.com/
Since then we have taken many trips and watercolored and journaled most of them.
My husband and I are now retired and we both enjoy ministering to people through our Church. He does Hospital visits and ministers to the elderly. I have found that sending people greeting cards with my simple watercolor sketches on them seem to be treasured.
God has greatly enriched our lives with Beauty and I like to show my gratitude by displaying His Glory in my art. I'm hoping that my watercolors bring joy to others, and praise and worship to our Creator. Marj. M.
